DF091 Encryption

This course was funded by the Bureau of Justice Assistance.

This course provides an introduction to data encryption, covering the purpose of encryption as well as the process of encrypting data, and clarifying the distinctions between encryption and other operations like password protection and encoding. It explores the confusion, diffusion, and secret key encryption methods. Topics include detecting encryption (including recognition of some of the most popular types of encryption software), as well as proper procedures for law enforcement professionals who detect that encryption may be present on a device. The course also provides an overview of some of the best and most common encryption detection software tools.

This course serves as a prerequisite for several classroom courses and can also be completed as a stand-alone course.
